Friday 22nd January

1. How do small rich cold countries manage their education? Join this OECD webinar, Let schools decide: The Norwegian approach to school improvement, at 10:00 UK time on Wednesday 27th January  to find out: https://meetoecd1.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_hAPnEo–Tpa0b5kWVrP7AQ

And if I’d written ‘cold small rich countries’ would that have meant something different, I wonder?

2. NATESOL is the Northern Association of Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages here in the UK. Several you have attended one of their previous webinars – the ‘Two Steves’ one on Reflective tools & talk for teacher development back in early November was an especially popular one. NATESOL are hosting their annual conference on Zoom this year, on Saturday 15th May, under the theme Challenge and Change in TESOL, and the deadline for proposals is 28th February. PDF with more information attached below. If your paper is accepted, we can arrange to pay your conference fee if that would be helpful.

[And here’s the link again to the resource pack for the ‘Two Steves’ session, in case you missed it first time round: https://warwick.padlet.org/stevemann/jcucxu3cmtqbjt5m The password is <reflective>.]

3. Lots of food for thought in this BBC Radio series, Disability: A New History  https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b02140ny

4. And, finally, more great stuff from the National Theatre of Scotland: Janey Godley’s play, Alone – free to watch and very good: https://www.nationaltheatrescotland.com/events/alone
